This border features a gryphon, plus stylised foliage. The first picture shows the basic unit (large format). The gryphon is a legendary creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. You mirror this pattern to produce the final picture. The second and third pictures (in a smaller format) show two ways that you can do this. I've added a border to produce a neat result. The fourth picture shows how you can repeat the pattern; this can obviously be extended as far as you wish.

The pattern of the gryphon by itself is on a separate page.
